Croix-Chapeau is a commune in the Charente-Maritime department in southwestern France.

History[edit]

From 1953 to 1966 there was a 500-bed U.S. Army hospital in Croix-Chapeau, run by the 28th General Hospital unit.[2] For a while after 1966 it was used as a French Military Hospital. After being abandoned for several years, it was sold to a developer, who in the 2000s repurposed it as an industrial park.[2]
